Increase in seizure activity during pregnancy??

I'm currently pregnant with my second child and am having constant auras the past two days. They started out pretty mild, but got to several a minute this evening. I called the on-call neurologist who said take a 1/2 Lamictal tablet (I'm currently on Lamictal only). I have Diazepam to take normally if any seizure activity starts, but can't take it during pregnancy. With my daughter, I had no seizures/auras at ALL during pregnancy. Normally my auras will turn into full complex partial after a day or two of auras, so cluster auras aren't anything new, but it has been actually worse today than normal. I was wondering if anyone else had an increase in seizure activity during pregnancy?

I'm 22 and I got pregnant when I was 18 and had her when I was 19. My seizures started when I was 5 months pregnant. I mainly had them when i was sleeping but the first one I had was when I was awake. They haven't stop and they have found no reason on why they began . But now that I compare the seizures I have more in my sleep now then i did when I was pregnant. Granted I only had them for four months during it . But the auras that I had during my pregnancy were the day before I had my seizures, now the auras are seconds before my seizures. I also have more awake now .
